His hobbies include gaming, acoustic guitar, music, journalism and hanging out with friends. He was also part of the school rowing and kayaking teams during his time in High School so any water based sports also catch his eye.
Despite popular belief Opium didn't choose his nickname based on a love for the drug opium but rather love for the word itself. This was inspired by memories of his childhood hero Tin Tin; a gun wielding, dog loving, drug busting reporter. The idea that every reporter carried a gun and rid the world of opium shipments didn't stick long as Opium is now a published journalist himself.
